Links Special: Dingle, Dooks, Tralee
(Also called Ceann Sibeal) was founded in 1924 and it is located on Sybil Head west of Ballyferriter on the western extremity of the Dingle Peninsula. The Ballyferriter and Dingle area is rich in Gaelic tradition with the Irish language still very much a part of everyday life. The Club is known as the most westerly golf club in Europe.
Each hole on this magnificent links golf course is carved from the natural landscape of one of the most unspoiled parts of Europe, with hazards laid down long before the game of golf was dreamt of, including a winding burn that twists and turns through the entire course. As you play the course at Dingle Golf Club, the whole panorama of the Dingle Peninsula is revealed – hidden bays with small fishing villages, glorious hills and mountains and the Blasket Islands out in the wild Atlantic. This area abounds in archeological treasures, wild flora and fauna, arts and crafts and ancient Gaelic culture.
These magical and mystical qualities will make your round of golf at Dingle Golf Club one you will never forget.“This course has everything that St. Andrews has to offer, and more!” Christy O’Connor Jnr

Located 8 miles southwest of Killorglin off the N70 Ring of Kerry route. Golf has been played here since 1889 and the course represents traditional Irish links golf at its best, offering the visitor a unique links experience in a majestic environment. The golf links is set out on one of the three stretches of sand dunes at the head of Dingle bay. In the immediate foreground are the sand dune peninsulas of Rossbeigh and Inch and just a few miles away the whitewashed houses of Cromane fishing village provide an eye catching distraction. South eastwards are the famed McGillycuddy’s Reeks, to the Southwest are the lovely cooms and hills of Glenbeigh and across the bay to the north are the Slieve Mish and Dingle mountains. A truly magical location for a stunning golf course. “Dooks is maybe the loveliest little golf club in the world. Certainly I have never been more totally surrounded by superb scenery than at Dooks” David Davies “The Guardian”

Tralee Golf Club founded in 1980 is located 8 miles Northwest of Tralee town on the Barrow Peninsula. A sensational Arnold Palmer designed links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape. It lies on the Southwest coast of Ireland at the gateway to the Dingle and Fenit Peninsulas and is one of the world’s most scenic and spectacular true links golf courses. The magnificent beach and surrounds featured prominently in the epic film Ryan’s daughter on the gentler outward nine you will negotiate the 6th, 7th and 8th known locally as Palmer’s loop. The back nine is a world of extraordinarily wild and massive dunes. The 12th hole is probably the most examining 2nd shot hole in golf where you are faced with a second shot to an elevated green with a deep ravine protecting the green. From the 14th tee there is a breathtaking view of Banna Strand which is renowned in song and story. The downhill par three 16th and the doglegged 17th are two more outstanding holes. “I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course. I am happy we have one of the world’s great links.” Arnold Palmer
